of course has been that russian troops would march across into eastern ukraine into and you would have a war there. in time that risk is easing. so i think the most likely scenario is that best case will not happen which is that russian forces withdrawing from crimea and international observers going in, i think is quite unlikely. the worst case is quite unlikely which is a war in east ukraine. i think the most likely scenario is that russian troops will remain in crimea. there will be some type of election that will have perhaps independents but probably more likely a great deal of autonomy. i think it's useful for them to vote in ukrainian elections. he doesn't want to lose those voters to help change the winds of the ukraine. this will be a long-term standoff. you had something similar in maldova where you had a russian transition of the area, and so i don't think this is going to be resolved any time soon. in the long run, though, i think that ukraine is going to end up a flourishing western economy like poland and just as ukrainians today look to poland, i think russians are

to put ukraine in nato. great idea. then we could fight the russians ourselves, which nato membership would require. are all these people crazy? weren't they thrilled like the rest of us when mikhail gorbachev decided to end the cold war? why do they yearn to get things fired up again? why do they positively pine for the fighting to get going? my answer, remember the way we got through the cold war was for 44 years, from 1947 to 1991, we, and this included every president from harry truman to ronald reagan, we avoided all the opportunities for the u.s. and the ussr to go to battle with each other. that's what we did. so why are the crazies on the right trying to do just the opposite? steven cohen is a professor of russian studies at new york university. and eugene robinson is a pulitzer prize winning columnist for "the washington post" and an msnbc political analyst. professor, thank you for joining us. why would -- let's get to putin here. what do you think he wants to do? what price is he willing to pay to do it? >> we crossed his red line. we've been crossing red lines e

militarily invade and occupy ukraine. now, i know mr. putin says he was protecting russian citizens, but there have been no credible examples of threats to any russian citizens in ukraine. in fact, "the new york times" reported this week that russian tourists have been sent to eastern ukraine where they are stirring up anger and resentment against the ukrainian government in kiev. arguing that russia can militarily invade another country any time, to protect russian people is an ominous suggestion that raises alarms for independent sovereign nations all along the russian borders and also raises the chapters of history back in the middle of the 20th century, which we need not recount here in detail. one need only look at the two regions of georgia that have been militarily occupied by russia since 2008. russia continues to illegally occupy these areas and has erected fences along administrative lines and permanent military bases in violation of the cease-fire agreement negotiated with the european union. now, i have been there myself and i have seen the deeply troubling permanent bases an
